was the following. mr. stevens, please compare american government and jazz music. chris told us he didn't quite know how to handle that question. my suggestion involved people blowing loudly on their horns or banging loud' on their drums was not terribly helpful. we decided to ask questions to trip up the applicant. we didn't have the internet to find a quick answer but figured it out. though chris may not have come up with the answer during that exam he certainly lived the message taught by this interesting comparison. both american democracy and jazz music involved ongoing experimentation. they involve unscripted action and improvisation as we figure out the best way to get along. both depend on a group allowing a soloist or representative to step forward and recite his piece while the rest of the group provides background harm any and rhythm. when both forms work, the world is treated to a remarkable result. where ad hoc and seemingly dissonent voices become a part. we know the amazing things chris achieved when he led the way as america collaborated with the libyan people and our allies to
chris highland. shortly thereafter chris stevens sat down next to me. the three of us went to lunch afterwards and became friends from that day forward. chris never tried to be someone special but he was someone special. when we were at hastings his charm and wit were on display from the start. in class he was very articulate and seemed as later in life always very poised and well spoken and at ease. i think our professors loved him. he liked being a student, even studying at the national war college a few years ago. he always seemed to genuinely enjoying studying and debating and was immersed in classes and activities of the school. particularly the hastings law journal, where he became managing editor. he very much liked the art of argument and trial law. he used to go to the courts nearby to watch very high profile trials and legendary judges and litigators. while he spent lots of times on the hastings campus, whether in library or out on what is called the beach in front of the school, he also liked to get off-campus and would often go for a run across golden gate bridge or play

>>> my name is chris stevens, i'm the new u.s. ambassador to libya. i had the honor to serve as the envoy to the libyan revolution and i was thrilled to watch the libyan people stand up and demand their rights. now i'm excited to return to libya to continue the great work we've started, building a solid partnership between the united states and libya to help you the libyan people achieve your goals. right now i'm in washington, preparing for my assignment. as i walk around the monuments and memorials commemorating the courageous men and women that made america what it is, i'm reminded we too went through challenging periods, when america was divided by a bitter civil war 150 years ago. president abraham lincoln had the vision to pull us together toward a shared goal of peace and prosperity. growing up in california i didn't know much about the arab world. then after graduating from the university of california at berkeley, i traveled to north africa as peace corps engineer. i worked as an english teacher in morocco two years and quickly grew to love this part of the world. si
stevens and three other americans. good morning, i'm chris matthews, with you for the hour, as we watch secretary clinton's testimony, in what will likely be her final appearance on capitol hill, as the nation's top diplomat. secretary clinton will face questions that republicans have wanted to ask for months. what exactly did she know about security failures in benghazi? well, nbc's kelly o'donnell is live on capitol hill. kelly, this is going to be one dramatic day up there. >> reporter: there has been so much buildup towards this. and because of not only the scope and the tragedy of what happened in benghazi, but the magnitude of who the prime witness is. hillary clinton, in one of her final acts as secretary of state, one of the things members have told me they really wanted to be certain about, was that she would testify while still secretary of state. as we all know, she suffered an illness, first there was a virus, a fall that led to a concussion, then a blood clot. had a really tough go. so there were questions about when she would be able to testify and even for a brief time, t
attacks in benghazi that claimed the lives of four brave americans. chris stevens, shawn smith and ben doherty and our partners and north africa. it's important we understand the context for this challenge. as we working to to protect our people and honor our fallen colleagues. any clear-eyed examination of this matter must begin with this sobering fact. since 1988, there have been 19 accountability review boards investigating attacks on american diplomats and facilities. since 1977, 65 american diplomatic personnel have been killed by terrorists. in addition those who have been killed, we know what happened in tehran with hostages being taken in 1979 and the embassy and marine barracks bombed? 1983. our embassies in east africa in 1998 and staff mored in jetta, saudi arabia in 2004 and the coast attack in afghanistan in 2009 and too many others. but i also want to stress the list of attacks that were foiled, crisis avert and lives saved is even longer. we should never forget that the professionals get it right more than 99% of the time because the terrorists only need to get it right
. they wanted to know why couldn't ambassador chris stevens and three other americans be rescued. why were repeated security warnings ignored, including a cable from the ambassador on 9/11, the day of the attack, the day he was killed. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately, with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11. and i really mean that. had i been president at the time, and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you from your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: pairing hostile questions all day, clinton was also the political pro. massaging big egos, sidestepping attacks when she could. when she couldn't, giving as good as she got. >> we were misled there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily -- ascertained that was not the fact. >> but -- >> the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect
made, and under estimations of the danger posed to chris stevens and others in benghazi, but these kinds of security decisions were made not in the floor where secretary clinton resides but at the sixth floor at my level and based on their professional expertise. >> john: i couldn't agree more, sir. a lot of watch watching had to recall in 2001 when warning bin laden's attacked in the u.s. that was ignored and we all know that condoleezza rice ended up being promoted. no one took responsibility. no one said the buck stops here. is it fair to say that some of our republican friends on the hill are hypocritical at worst and amnesia at best. >> i disagree with what you just said. yes, you know, there were warning signs prior to 9/11 just as they were warning signs prior to benghazi. i do not see that there was any one action that could have prevented what happened on-- >> john: which i'm not suggesting. >> and i think there were a combination of miscalculations made. by the same tone there was a question posed by a representative this afternoon from south carolina. i didn't
cain. >> were you and the president made aware of the classified cable from chris stevens, that the united states consulate in benghazi could not survive a sustained assault? numerous warnings, including personally to me about the security were unanswered or unaddressed. it took a cnn reporter looking through the consulate to find chris stevens's last warning. >> that reporter, of course, was our own senior international correspondent, arwa damon who found ambassador chris steven's journal in the ruins of the consulate in benghazi. arwa is joining us now from beirut, remind our viewers, what was it like when you got to that benghazi consulate? >> reporter: well, we arrived on scene three days after the attack had taken place to find it even at that point in time, completely unsecured, not being treated like a are crime scene at all. the vast majority of the buildings had been burned. and to access the so-called safe room we had to crawl through a window, which we later found out was the same window that ambassador steven's body had been pulled out by other libyan individuals later on. when
. ambassador chris stevens, shaun smyth, tyrone, lost their lives during terrorist attacks. we grieve with their families. we also resolved to take specific actions to prevent future incidents. we may not be able to prevent every single terrorist attack of the future, but we can and must make sure our embassies and employees are capable of withstanding such an attack. the department has embraced all 29 of the recommendations. we hear more today about the progress already made toward implementation of many of the recommendations. i would add the congress is not without responsibility. we have an obligation to do our part to comply with the administrative review board's recommendations. i intend to work with the department in the coming months on legislation that will improve security and better protect our employees. one of the easiest things we can do is ensure the contract rules allow for sufficient flexibility to allow them to quickly make decisions where security is at risk and to hire local guards on a best-value basis to ensure we are not just checking the box when it comes to pr

serving in d.c. and in more than 275 posts around the world. ambassador chris stevens, sean smith, tyrone woods and glen doherty lost their lives on september 11th, 2012, during terrorist attacks on the special mission benghazi. as a committee we honor their service to our nation and we grieve with their families but we also resolve to take specific actions to prevent foot incidents. we may not be able to prevent every single terror attack in the future but we can and we must make sure that our embassies and employees, starting with high-risk, high threat posts are capable of with standing such an attack. to that end the secretary clinton and the department embraced and agreed to implement all 29 of the administrative review board's recommendations. today we'll hear more about the progress the department has made toward implementation of many of the recommendations. but i would add that congress is not without responsibility here. we also have an obligation to do our part to comply with the administrative review board's recommendations. it is my intention to work with the members of the c
in benghazi that killed four americans including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. at the top of the next hour, it's the house's turn and we may hear still more fireworks there. like this response from secretary clinton earlier to a suggestion that the administration misrepresented the real cause of this attack. >> we were misled there were supposedlyrotests and something sprang out of that and that was easily ascertained that was not the fact and the american people could have known in days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans, was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk one night and decided they'd go kill some americans. what difference, it at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again. people were trying in real-time to get to the best information. the ic has a process, i understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out, but you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking
and that's the construct that chris stevens willingly walked into because he understood that as we see a libya or egypt or tunisia or yemen move forward, the united states has to be there. while there were mistakes made and underestimations, we can't reduce it to zero. chris stevens understood the situation in benghazi better than anyone else and decided to be there and we should be grateful for his service and his sacrifice. >> the biggest mistake was putting susan rice on that sunday morning on television with what turned out to be wrong intelligence when they didn't need to go that fast. that's probably as much the media's fault for demanding that they do that kind of thing. i think everyone is culpable here. let's take a break and we'll come back and talk about two more hot button topics, guns in america and women on the front line. this is america. we don't let frequent heartburn come between us and what we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day after day... block the acid with prilosec otc and don't get heartburn in the first place!

clinton took responsibility for the deaths of four americans including ambassador chris stevens. this is one of her last hearings before she steps down. john kerry is the nomination to replace her. from the foreign relations committee, this is to 0.5 hours. -- 2.5 hours. >> let me begin by welcoming the new members to the committee. since the false and that has not passed the committee resolution of official late seating members, i want to ask consent to allow our prospective members to participate in today's hearing. let me welcome me and thank you for honoring your commitment to come before the committee after the review board's findings. you said you would after the findings were completed. you have a bit of an intervening challenge. we are thrilled to see you here today doing well. and to take time out of your schedule to discuss the tragic events from the causing -- from benghazi to learn. in your tenure as secretary, you've always been up front and energetic and defending our foreign service officer and their needs. i commend you for it. the tragic event in benghazi are a
. it was their capacity. and as you know, from the first time chris stevens arrived before the fall of gadhafi, he relied not on any libyan governmental committee but on the february 17th brigade and then we supplemented that after gadhafi's fall with ds agents and private security agents. so there was no effect on anything from the libyan government that was related to that. however, we do think that needs to be looked at going forward. the a.r.b. made a very important point, that the so-called temporary nature of the mission did prove to be confusing to people down the chain responsible for reading those cables. we get about, i don't know, how many millions of cables do we get? and i have to confess i do not read all of the cables that come into the state department. that's why we have huge workforce for people who are given responsibility and look forward to carrying that responsibility and i think designating it as temporary in the a.r.b.'s findings did cause an extra level of uncertainty to some extent. as the chairman said at the beginning, quoting from the a.r.b., there has been a culturation to h

cable from chris stevens that said the united states consulate in benghazi could not survive a sustained assault, numerous warnings, including personally to me, about the security were unanswered or unaddressed. it took a cnn reporter looking through the consulate to find chris stevens' last warning. when were you made aware of that cable? when were you made aware of the attack on the british ambassador and the assassination attempts and closing of the consulate there? what actions were taken? what was the president's activities during that seven-hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. with all of these warnings, all of these things took place, we didn't have a single department of defense asset apparently available to come to the rescue. i cat gorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask the survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say

cain asked her about that cable that was sent by chris stevens, the ambassador who died on 9/11, the day of the attack. hillary clinton answered by talking about what the house has held back and the holds on security funds for their budget, but never really responded why she had not seen that cable, why all of these requests had not reached her desk. >> it was a deft sidestep and probably with the mccain/clinton matchup, it was the most even handed of the exchanges we saw today. they have a long history. they are good personal friends. there's a lot of respect between them. there is a lot of warmth between them, but on this issue, mccain got out of the way all of his thanks and salutations to the secretary, then said he strongly disagrees. she came prepared to put some of the burden back on congress, so she was armed with a lot of facts about things congress has done or not done that might contribute to the overall security picture for these missions in dangerous places. what i was also struck by is, i can't remember another time during a hearing when a senator referred to himself, if i
